Sue (suekerr) | 24 comments I'm lookin' for a juvenile fiction series revolving around a young women (high school) living with her widowed father and at least one brother. I know that midway through the series, a girl named D'arcy moves to town and is considered "fast" by the other girls, but eventually they become friends. The protagonist has a friend/boyfriend named Joe. They are married in the final books and living over her father's garage. This is not the Betsy-Tacy series.

CLM | 301 comments Sounds like the Beany Malone books by Lenora Mattingly Weber (although there isn't a Joe character, she has a brother named Johnny). In Make a Wish for Me, Dulcie the flirtatious car hop with a heart of gold, first makes her appearance. Beany's father is a widower in the early books, and she and her siblings share housekeeping responsibilities.

Deb | 48 comments And living over the garage in the later books is Beany's friend Kay and husband Joe.. I think Constance is right on the money, as usual!
